Thank you for your answers.
My take up rail is indeed a fingers width from the machine,with the backing rail high enough not to have the layers sloped.
I swear I might stock up on Medlers thread, which I heard creates a lot less lint. It's El tha uses that thread, what I don't know if she only uses it for piecing her quilts.
I have used this thread before yes.
I'v had my frame since I bought it in Paducah. (April 2008)
So no I have only ran pracice quiltts on it so far.
Then last week I loaded an actually real quilt on it for PepperDawg, who doesn't mind it too much if I havea few oopsks in her quilt.
I kept going a bit slowing hoping to see WHERE the thread was breaking and it was happening in that thread tension setting unit.
So I adjusted it to a very low tension, and it seems fine now.
I hope this is the end of this problem, sice I would like to have Dereks quilt done by the end of this weekend.
